Join celebrities as they play detective and go in search of their family history, which often reveals surprising secrets from the past, in this fascinating documentary. Tonight, UK actor Nigel Havers (right,
Chariots of Fire, Don’t Wait Up), whoo is most often seen playing upper class characters, delves into his roots down his mother’s line, travelling to rural Cornwall to discover a tale of illegitimacy worthy of a period drama. Then pursuing his father’s side, Nigel finds himself in Colchester learning about a Victorian man who made good but ended up losing everything. It’s an eye-opener for everyone, especially Havers.
